Forensic Psychology Services
Psychological and neuropsychological evaluations for individuals involved in legal proceedings.
The need to identify psychological and cognitive problems can intersect with legal proceedings. Our forensic psychology services provide assistance with case conceptualization, diagnosis, and treatment planning. Our forensic psychology services are designed to help attorneys, caseworkers, and probation officers better understand their client’s psychological and cognitive functioning.
Assessment of Cognitive, Emotional & Behavioral Problems
The nature of certain types cognitive and psychological problems can make it difficult for those experiencing disruptive changes to accurately perceive their behavior in relation to their problems. For example, diminished insight can be a symptom of certain types of dementia, brain injury, and mental health conditions. When this is the case, the person who needs help might not be fully aware of the problematic behavior that is apparent to others.
These types of situations can be confusing and stressful for everyone. Our forensic psychology services can help gain insight into the problems and learn about appropriate treatment options.
